I worked with Dr. Shakya for about 3 months and I’m so grateful that I stumbled upon his business card while at another appointment. I initially thought that I had a rotator cuff injury that only surgery would correct after heavy lifting. I also have gone to multiple doctors from rheumatologist, neurologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, orthopedic surgery, and more trying to discover why my knees shut down on me resulting in crutches and knee braces. I had accepted the fact that I may never do many of the things that I’ve always enjoyed doing and that as time goes on my condition would only deteriorate, that is until I came to MMA & Sports Rehab. Dr. Shakya helped me to understand some of the reasons I have chronic physical pain and educated me on how systemic medical issues may worsen my physical condition. Through manual physical therapy, strengthening, and education, I have seen some improvement and am optimistic about my future. Dr. Shakya was very understanding of work/life issues and other health issues that made it difficult for me to consistently give 100%, but he met me at my level. Needless to say, I will be starting back with Dr. Shakya this weekend and I am very happy to have him on my medical team as one of my cheerleaders.
